Four years after the Syrian conflict began in 2011 there is no end in sight.
The civil war engulfing the country has killed over 200,000 people, prevented 3 million children from attending school and forced 10 million people to flee their homes.
Numbers this large can be hard to grasp but a striking illustration of the suffering inflicted comes from satellite photos that show 83% of the country has been plunged into darkness.
It’s time to stand with Syria.
On the fourth anniversary of the conflict, a coalition of international charities including Oxfam, Amnesty and the International Rescue Committee have released this video and a petition to urge world leaders to find a diplomatic solution to the conflict, end civilian suffering and boost humanitarian aid.
Find out more about the #withSyria campaign, sign the petition or share the video to spread the word.
